The panoramic views of downtown created the perfect backdrop for Erin & Corey’s fall city wedding in Chicago.
After the church ceremony, the couple hopped on a trolley to get to the reception site. The modern loft was set with linenless wood farm tables with industrial chairs. Greenery garlands lined the guest tables, bringing an earthy feel to the venue. The bride’s bouquet of ivory and maroon flowers served as the centerpiece for the sweetheart table.
How they met: Erin and Corey met in the fall of 2007 at The Summit Bar & Restaurant while attending The University of Iowa. Erin was enjoying herself on the dance floor when an uninvited gentleman tried joining her for a dance. A wave of panic immediately came over Erin as her would-be dance partner came in for the kill. As luck would have it, at that very same moment, Corey was walking across that same dance floor. Erin saw her opportunity for salvation and immediately grabbed Corey’s arm. Corey, taken by surprise, looked down to find a short little freshman attached to his arm. Without even introducing herself, Erin introduced Corey as her boyfriend to escape her impending doom. With Corey’s interest piqued, he decided to play along with the charade just so he could learn more about this intriguing girl. That was the first day of the rest of his life.
